NAPLES, Fla. – A 14-year-old girl walked up to a man dressed as President Donald Trump as he stood in line at the Collier County fairgrounds in Naples, Florida, and allegedly punched him while her friends recorded it.

According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the girl faces a misdemeanor charge of battery for the 8:40 p.m. Saturday incident.

An incident report indicates that the man and his family were in line to go into a haunted house exhibit when the girl walked over to him and punched him in the jaw. 

The man said the girl laughed and ran back to her place in line with about four other juveniles.

The man approached her and asked why she punched him before finding a fair worker and asking for the sheriff’s deputies to report the incident.

The deputy questioned the girl and her parents. While interviewing them, a woman identifying herself as a Collier County School system employee said the incident was posted on Instagram. 

The deputy told the family that due to the nature of the crime and “that the sole motivation was to strike ‘Trump’,” investigators may follow up with them.

The Naples Haunted Gross House is an annual Halloween-themed event at the fairgrounds.
